Hi Lucky2783,

What is the source of this question? I ask because it's 'constructed' in a vague way and the wording lacks proper GMAT "style."

Hi Lucky2783,

From your last post, it sounds like you are the author of this question. If so, then can you tell me your purpose for writing it (are you writing questions for a GMAT company or for a project/book/website, etc.)?
